the flashy thing thats in the top right of the screen needs to be moved into the middle of the screen?????

I use capturemode so if someone spams chat 'teams' I dont see it, plus when your focusing on the game its easy to ignore the flashy especially as your eyes are constantly focused in the middle!

back this idea up pls its annoying seeing constant 4v5 hits and I cant think of anyway it would have a negative impact.

Don't use capture mode. I've never missed the imbalanced teams alert.

doesnt explain why there are still obvious 4v5 hits every several games. whats the point in having a capturemode if you cant use it?!

I would say not to implement it in the middle. It would be so annoying esp. when you try to go in for a bomb hit and can't see anything.

well thats kinda the reason why.. maybe just off centre so you can see ur plane, the only time when its 4v5 and a hit should keep happen is when its the 4 men about to get the hit on the 5 men. Even then it shouldnt be 4v5 really cause the 5 team have the 5th man advantage still.

Why do you play in capturemode? That's for... uh... capturing.

In the last month or so, there have been two types of 4v5 hits that I have witnessed.

1) Team is already on a push and someone dc's during the middle. It'd be unfair (and abusable) to the offensive team to force them to bomb waste.

2) We yell teams for 2 minutes while Nipple proceeds to bomb run 5v4 after claiming not to see the big, red, bold sign in the corner that entire time.

so what exactly would be wrong with moving the warning sign nearer the middle of the screen? I have to use capturemode to get rid of all the chat.

IMO when someone leaves a ladder game, the person on the opposing team with the most similar rating is forced to spec.

GENIUS AMIRITE OR AM I RIGHT

Ya, totally, because mid bomb run or mid block, that would be fair. I'mma leave and rejoin every time I die in a push.

Why not just have the server do a serverwhisper or servermessage when someone dc's who is playing? Not a chance in the world you can miss that.

Because that would be annoying as heck for the 99.99% of players who see the BIG RED 4v5 indicator the way it is now. The whole game isn't going to be changed to accommodate you.

Maybe there should be a option/command to disable chat without going to capture mode?

have the server autoassign the lowest rated player to spec next time they die or after 15 seconds, whatever comes first. win

Where can I get information on the various capture modes?

I checked http://nimblygames.com/wiki/index.php?title=Ready_For_Takeoff:_The_Unofficial_ Guide_to_Altitude Wiki but it only lists the command and doesn't say anything.

I'd like to be able to not see spectators chat when I play too so I should use /capturemode 2 ? What else does this capturemode do? I don't want to ignore admins for instance. Like if an admin who's specing tells me to spec the next game or something.

Capture modes are intended for users who are trying to make videos of Altitude. All the various capture modes prevent certain features from being rendered on the screen such as:

Usernames above planes
Chat window
Kill log
etc
etc

Capture modes were never intended to remove spec chat.

Thanks Karl, so I guess I don't really need capture mode while playing, dunno why some people use it though.

its just makes gameplay a bit cleaner and less things in your face, helps keep focus imo!
